2018年8月后加拿大AmEx SPG信用卡的情况

2018年8月21日更新:新的加拿大AmEx SPG(个人和商务)信用卡的开卡欢迎积分是3个月内消费$1500得50000点。嗯,比先前的开卡20000点旧SPG还是要差一些,但绝对比前几个月的$200 credit要好多了。不过现在AmEx还没有说referral的积分是多少【预测还是会有的,所以大家现在应该等待再等待。。】。


按官方消息,AmEx SPG个人卡在2018年8月后的改变如下:
  • 年费$120,目测开卡奖励和目前一致
  • 开卡后3个月内消费$1500可得50000点
  • 在SPG和万豪酒店消费,每花$1得5给万豪点【降了】
  • 其他消费,每花$1得2个万豪点【降了】
  • 持卡人每年得到一张免费房券(可换up to 35000点的房间)【利好】
  • 持卡人自动得万豪银卡,如果年消费3万刀以上得万豪金卡【鸡肋】
  • 附卡免费【要是大家现在看见有添附卡送SPG点的offer,可以上了】
  • 可以在万豪旗下酒店免费享受premium internet access【比原先好】

AmEx SPG商业卡在2018年8月后的改变如下:
  • 年费$150,目测开卡奖励和目前一致
  • 开卡后3个月内消费$1500可得50000点
  • 在SPG和万豪酒店消费,每花$1得5个万豪点
  • 在加油/吃饭/旅行时,每花$1得3个万豪点
  • 其他消费,每花$1得2个万豪点
  • 持卡人每年得到一张免费房券(可换up to 35000点的房间)
  • 持卡人自动得万豪银卡,如果年消费3万刀以上得万豪金卡
  • 可以在万豪旗下酒店免费享受premium internet access.

简单些的比较可以把1个万豪点算加币1 cent。那基本上AmEx SPG个人卡的普通消费就是2%回报。如果你有其他更高回报的MasterCard/Visa,那AmEx SPG就只能变成酒店抽屉卡了,去住店的时候拿出来刷刷就行。万豪银卡没屁用,万豪金卡也没早餐。。。

从改变上看,新的AmEx SPG有不少Chase Marriott Visa的影子,不过AmEx把最重要的免外汇转换费给忘了。。。当然,卡上每年的那个房券还是很值的(旺季可换up to Cat 4;淡季可换up to Cat 5),绝对超过年费了。注意,房券只有在8月1日之后等每年你交完年费后才有。聚沙可能会保留1张AmEx SPG个人卡。
